Aims

The industrial placement aims to:
- provide students with the experience of seeking and securing a position with an employer,
- provide a period of practical experience which will benefit your academic study and longer term career,
- provide the opportunity to recognise and record the development of work place skills,
- facilitate personal development in a non-university setting.

Outline Of Syllabus

Students apply for a placement during stage 2 of the degree programme, and if successful they will normally begin work by September of the academic year, finishing the following summer. During this time there is no taught content from the university. The employer may provide induction and training activities as appropriate.
During the placement year there will be at least one visit from a member of academic staff, and three assessed exercises to undertake. These exercises take the form of a short 'company structure' report, a log book
maintained throughout the year and a final report.
